Wedding preparations (so far)

Well, not much of a progress to be honest. Except that we had finally took some cheesy pre-wedding photography from a studio and fingers crossed that we will be pleased with the outcomes. Choosing the photos this weekend. The staffs of the studio said it’s best to take the photos at least 3 months before the wedding date and ho ho ho, we did ours 4 months ahead! Wahahhahahaa. We just wanna get it done and over with and then concentrate with the next thing.

We got the bed frame and mattress already. The room will be painted soon. Then only after we have the bed inside the room then we can decide on the bedside table, cabinets, tables and others (so we won’t get over ambitious and purchase furniture that can’t fit! Don’t later walk also like ketam baru can pass through wtf).

Anyways, I bought myself a pair of really cheap shoes and did a little DIY for pre-wedding shoot. It was the last pair on the shelves and probably worn by hundreds of right foot, dirty, stained and….. comfy! I think I can work with that so I just bought it. It’s cheap bah cheap! Rosak also nevermind.

Bought 2 key chain with bow and charms and sewed them on to the shoes. Fast and simple DIY that everyone can do I think.

And this is the bouquet I asked my boss (principal) to make for me and it costs like 40% cheaper than those readymade in kedai! I love my boss. Hehehhehheee. She’s like the most awesome boss I ever have! Firm, charismatic, helpful, sincere and funny! (Not kissing her ass here because I doubt she will be reading this)

Here, last photo for this post.

Took our indoor shoot last week and I think we were a lot more comfortable this time and hopefully we did better.

Oh, while my make up artist was about to take this picture saying 1…. 2……3…. Bobby quickly took the bouquet and placed in front of my chest and posed with that stern face. Hahhahaa. He said the caption of the photo will be, “Eh, cannot rugi to people” (you know, the whole “Its okay to stare at other girls but my wife/girlfriend must protect well don’t let other men see wtf). He didn’t really mean it because he’s not a overly protective boyfriend, he eksen-eksen saja.

For now, we’re still procrastinating over the most dreaded part of wedding, INVITATIONS! The card, zero percent done, the guest lists…erm…. can say half half? Most of my married friends said the same thing to me, “Ahh… that one ah… last minute one…. Everyone did it the same way anyway so don’t worry about that”


So far I’m still not quite much of a bridezilla. Still cool and relax when my bridesmaids keep asking me what do they need to do and stuffs and honestly, even I myself have no idea what favour I need from them. I feel really loved lor, I have no siblings but I have really awesome friends!

Pre Wedding shoot

You have no idea how worried we both were when we looked out the windows and all we got were dark clouds and rain drops! And Bobby said I jinxed it because earlier on, at like 7am, I was like, hey look.. The weather seems good today! It's gonna be great. Sekali... An hour later, my friends from Seria and BSB all told us its raining heavily in their areas and some even had thunderstorm. Soi-ness!

I had like one big bag of props (not really big just that I was a little kiasu and made some photo props myself) and the make up artist laughed and said if only all their customers were like me. I'll say it's a compliment.

And when we finally reached location #1, the rain gradually stopped, sky starting to clear and sun was out! Thank you God! And I just walked around with the big gown all lifted up, wrapped in a button shirt (so its easier to take off without kana the hair or face) and carrying the train as if I looked pregnant in my SLIPPERS! Very the unglam. Hahahhahahah. And, I actually walked all the way to the food court to makan looking like that too.

Then we went to Sheepy's place, using it as a pit stop to change because her apartment is near to location #2. Then... Take take take, finish then went to location #3, special request by Bobby.

It was really tiring to walk around with that heavy gown and most of the time. I was either kaki-ayam or in my selipar jepun since cannot see my feet also. And, both Bobby and I got food poisoned! Think is the food from food court lah.

Bah that's it lah. I need to recover from the tiredness yesterday and food poisoning today.

Fingers crossed that the photos will turned out nice because we both felt we did shitty in it. Well, still got indoor one to try harder. Hehehehhe

My Pink iPad2


My K-Bob must be very confused now….

Why confused?
Because ming-ming (obviously) my iPad is a boy boy and I ngeh-ngeh turned into pink color.
Hehehhehehee. I think K-Bob hates me now.

The whole story is like this……

In January when I was busy moving house, I put my iPad (with those lousy iPad cover that doesn’t secure the corners) on top my basket of clothing. And when I walked towards my place from my car, the iPad dropped on to the gravel road and sibeh chun-chun fell on its edges!

The cracks wasn’t that bad actually… just one big curvy line.

But as time goes by.. the crack macam disease like that, spread till mother also cannot recognize!

(What I meant by “cracked till mother also cannot recognize”)


People gave out a loud gasp whenever they saw my iPad and asked, “YOUR IPAD CRACKED AH?”.
And I answered, “No lah, it’s just an apps to give out that effect.”

The reason why it took me thaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat long to send it for repair was because, the repair cost was too damn high! Then my friends who had cracked iPhone told me he ordered the parts from eBay and he’s going to replace it himself, with tutorials from YouTube.

So I was like… not bad also ah.
(Better than paying $380 to the authorized dealer…. or $150 to the non-authorized one…. And have to wait 2 to 3 weeks for the parts to arrive, and another week to repair….)

I went online and found this super nice screen in pink from a HK seller in eBay and bought it around BND50 – 60. White/Black iPad is too mainstream bah..

Okay, the technical term for that is… *copy and paste* Pink Touch Screen Glass Digitizer Replacement + 3M Tape for Apple iPad 2.


Honestly, when the part arrived, I didn’t send it immediately to repair because
1) I have no idea who to send, because..
2) I want to find someone / shop who can get it fixed within a day because I’m inseparable from K-Bob!

I went to a few shops and asked and just the labour cost to replace the glass digitizer is around $70 – $90, depending on the damage.

P1210599 P1210600
No eye see….


Then… I got asked so frequently by my friends, “Eh… why still cracked? Thought you got the screen already? Why still not yet fixed? You wait what?”… Annoyed I got annoyed and decided must die die get it fixed within that week when I was in BSB running errands (because I would be busy and bearable without my iPad. I’m not addicted to it, just that I’m used to the convenience).

And you know what, I randomly went in to a shop and asked, how much to replace and how long does it take to replace the glass digitizer, ready for answers like, $80 and 3 days minimum.. we will called you when it’s done…. But no! He told me, ONE HOUR AND $50!


The fastest and cheapest so far (that I asked)!
Terus lueh-fan-ying lah me!


Ladies and Gentlemen… I introduce you my new revamped iPad…

Mr. Sissy K-Bob!

It’s like brand new once again, accept the edges that I dented…


p/s: The shop that I sent for repair is CityMobile in Times Square (ground floor). I got see them selling black glass digitizer for $20 if not wrong.

p/p/s: because I super takut I’ll dropped it again, I got myself a BookBook case making sure it’s fully covered, zipped, and very secure even if tai-kat-lai-si (touchwood) drop it again
